H.E. Admiral M.L. Usni Pramoj, a Privy Councillor is also an accomplished musician and composer.
String Quatet No. 1 was inspired by the turmoil in Bangkok. I began to work on my quartet in the middle of April 2010 when the nation was facing its most serious crisis in recent years.
The first movement portrays rural life, a life by no means luxurious but adequate in its simplicity.
“The third movement expresses an outpouring of grief for the hurt inflicted upon this lovely nation. The last movement does not tell a story because such has yet to come to pass. Instead it projects the hope that thais will come together to rebuild the nation, that we shall once again be united in peace.”
A 3-couse set menu will be available for this evening only, in addition to our Thai and International a la carte menus for those wishing to dine following the concert.
